K          “An award acknowledging and celebrating the work of someone on the planet who really knows something about eco-nomics.  Eco-nomics is about making and sharing; e-con-omics is about taking and stealing.”

J          “The Noble Prize in Eco-nomics is a delightful and playful replacement for the discredited and misnamed ‘Nobel’ Prize in Voodoo E-con-omics.  You get what you reward.  You need to reward what you want to get.  Who gets it this year?”

K          “The recipient of the sixth annual Noble Prize In Eco-nomics is . . . John Williams who has produced Shadowstats for years.  His site observes: “‘John Williams’ Shadow Government Statistics’ is an electronic newsletter service that exposes and analyzes flaws in current U.S. government economic data and reporting, as well as in certain private-sector numbers, and provides an assessment of underlying economic and financial conditions, net of financial-market and political hype.”  He has contributed immensely and with little credit providing accurate statistics using the government’s original formulas.”
